Description:

Spectacular and varied route with multiple cruxes. Starts left of Leviathan. Dirty start leads to crimpy crux through a bulge. Easier climbing to a long reach/dyno move. Milk the no-hands rest before launching into the last crux section.

5 out of 5 stars Top crux makes you earn it

Took awhile to get this one, was always too burned out by the time I hit the final crux. Take the rests that make themselves available. Most of the loose stuff has come clean. The key to the top is locking in the hand jam before you move up. Being over 5'10" helps.

3 out of 5 stars Fun route.

3rd Go. Bouldery bottom crux. Jugs, crimps, gastons, pinches, jugs, slabs and slopers. This has it all. Fun.

4 out of 5 stars Fun moves all the way!

Great flow on this route between fun gymnastic moves. Suited my style so felt more like 12b...
